Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

If you did some research you would see UK reactor cooling systems are tsunami proofed.
And we don't even get tsunamis.

No, I think that’s what you’re trying to say.
I see the UK uses nuclear energy to product one sixth of its power.
Looking back I think the entire world should have held off on using nuclear power until after computer science advanced. They’re more safer today than in the 70’s and 80’s because of advanced computer control systems.
But even then we see what recently happened at the Fukushima disaster in 2011. That nuclear plant was ill prepared for the earthquake and tsunami. And Japan is an earthquake prone region and always has been.
When these nuclear systems suffer accidents they really contaminate a large area for generations. But we know it’s all ok because you Atheist bare so much confidence in science.
It kind of turns my stomach to see all this praise and worship from Atheist about science. If you talk to any of the 300,000 people in Japan that had to be uprooted because of that nuclear mess. I’m sure they don’t view science achievements at the same prestigious way you Atheist do.
You fine folks in the UK will have a different opinion about science if you have one of these awful nuclear accidents. Which I certainly hope you don’t. But one of the enemies of these great scientific achievements is overconfidence. There’s plenty of that in the UK evidently.

When it comes to advanced technological processes and potentially dangerous systems. Overconfidence is an enemy.

Process systems have to be continually reviewed. We called that “HAZOP” in the chemical industry,(A hazard and operability study).

Then management has to be committed to implementing HAZOP recommendations each and every year. And that cost money and there lies the dilemma. Because management types get bonuses for coming under budget.

What can go wrong will go wrong and it’s all just a matter of when. I wish your country no ill will and hope you remain safe and sound.

I just don't understand why homophobia is still so widespread. Older members of my family say they don't what the fuss is all about now, but most would have held homophobic views when they were my age.

Dumbfounded again?
The Bible isn't intended as a detailed dissertation on Creation. The fact that you agree it gives an impressive condensed description is a concession of its supernatural origin. Something you clearly have given up on explaining.

The chances are you would not even be living today if it were not for this mans accomplishments in Medical Science. His work has touched everyone who ever was vaccinated.

“He was an average student in his early years, and not particularly academic, as his interests were fishing and sketching.”

He had an “Absolute faith in God.”

December 27, 1822 – September 28, 1895) He was a French chemist and microbiologist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization.

He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and preventions of diseases, and his discoveries have saved countless lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax.

His medical discoveries provided direct support for the germ theory of disease and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization.

He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".

He also made significant discoveries in chemistry, most notably on the molecular basis for the asymmetry of certain crystals and racemization. He was the Director of the Pasteur Institute, established in 1887, till his death, and his body lies beneath the institute in a vault covered in depictions of his accomplishments in Byzantine mosaics.

He was not an Atheist but a man that believed in God.

His name was Louis Pasteur.

My good friend, may I suggest you get up off the bar stool you are on. Use the ladder leaning on it and climb all the way down to ground level.

Then hobble over into your mad laboratory and come up with a scheme to take over the entire world for one million dollars.
